Images of all Colors

Ebony and Ivory. (B&W)

Two distinct identities which were seldom put together due to racial discrimination. True, racism poisons the community and negatively harms all of us in different ways. Blatantly hateful actions arise due to discrimination, affecting pursuits in worldwide progress.

But it’s good to know that there is an organization which develops racial awareness in everything it does. It is the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. Distributing publications worldwide, it caters to a vast market yet always takes into consideration its readers and the issues that lie within.

An article making copies which adapt to the regions which they will be shipped.

Not only the persons are considered, but also the settings of the photos.

There is no snow in the second copy. (To be shipped to African regions where there is no snow)

Racial awareness and culture are really considered.

Skin tone, even of partial exposure, are also significant.

Thus, magazines of all kinds...

...and even tracts (or smaller publications) are also customized for different cultures.

Extensive studies and efforts are carried out in order to come up with these results. The goal? To reach the hearts of all sorts of people without offending others or causing conflicts. So, the next time these publications with "images of all colors" reach your doors, please feel free to appreciate it.

Truly a remarkable provision!

Let's sing... :p

Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony

Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh lord, why dont we?

We all know that people are the same where ever we go
